Here’s the interview with Gary Pearson of the legendary and newly reformed NWOBHM band Vardis

Welcome to another of our ‘Interviews with…’

In the chair this week is Gary Pearson, the drummer of the newly reformed Vardis. Gary talks about the early days when he joined the band back in the late 70s, the music scene as it was back then in Wakefield, the time Vardis spent in London playing gigs at the legendary Marquee Club as well as the music festival that is now part of Heavy Metal folklore, ‘The Heavy Metal Holocaust’.

It’s a fascinating insight into the group and how reforming the band came about. Listen to the interview here.
